enlisted in the only second regimental combat team. he saw combat in italy and southern france and was badly wounded during an engagement for which he was awarded the distinguished service cross, which was later upgraded to the medal of honor. the highest award for military valor. with financial assistance from the g.i. bill, inouye graduated from the university of hawaii and the george washington university law school. when hawaii became a state on august 21, 1959, daniel inouye won elections for the united states house of representatives is the new states first congressman. later collected the united states senate in 1962, he currently is serving his eighth term in the united states senate. in our earlier interview is in the series, other people we have spoken to have talked about the first time they were sworn in as a member of congress. in 1959, he became the first member from hawaii. what was that like when you were first on the floor of the house of representatives? >> i have never been on the floor of the chamber, and so it was an awesome experience for me to be among a
contributing countries. european union, france, others have already begun to really engage with the malian forces, so it isn't as if there is an abstinence of support for them in the intervening period. >> what lessons have we learned, if i might, ms. dory and mr. gast, i think the mission just celebrated the 50th anniversary. we were actively engaged in the training a good thing as a part of the very probably democracy support and in trying to create and sustain a cultural democracy what lessons are there that we might learn going forward about political failures and more on domestic issues in the work rather abrupt requirement that we break off relations and support here has created a great difficulty with regional consequences. what lessons would you suggest we learn? the best of times mali is a country in crisis. it is a country that ranks of the model of a dozen. the assistant secretary carson mentioned 90% of the population is in the south and that population is also in the need of services. the government hasn't included both in the delivery of services as well as the governments of
enough good things about our friends and colleagues in the european union and london and france, brussels, germany throughout and other countries as well. they are anxious as you know, they are anxious as to how this will work. we have said let's give it more time, let's work through the substitution of compliance issues, but they have been excellent. >> thank you. my time is expired. i yield back. thank you mr. chairman. >> thank you, mr. chairman and chairman gensler and director cook for being here. right that there is a different timetable that has been adopted by the sec and the cftc and compare of all requirements? >> you are right that we were given an easier task because we are just a future in the swaps regulator and they have such a broad portfolio. as we have completed about 80% of the rules. we have one year to complete the task but here we are two and a half years later. >> is that going to be confusing for the firms and costly for? >> there may be challenges. the swaps that we overseas, interest-rate swaps and physical commodities swaps and credit industries represent about
, keep the money here in the united states where we needed instead of trying to buy air france. >> host: how much money are responding militarily overseas? >> we have basic architecture of 750 bases scattered around the globe. is that oversees spending, not overseas spending? i still hear, spend it there. i'd like to count that. if you're talking about foreign aid, as it's sometimes called to my f-1 assistance program comes to about 5 percent of our gross domestic product faugh. if i said $26 billion it sounds like a lot of money, but the biggest department of defense appropriations $6,507,000,000,000 is a drop in the bucket. as a proportion of our total federal budget is six -- it is extremely small. so, you know, it is a common misperception in the american public that we spend a lot of money in foreign aid. in fact, if people it says we spend 15-25 percent of the budget on foreign aid. it is nowhere close to that. such than a single percentage point of our entire gdp, extremely small, so from my point of view on the whole that is a worthy investment, but it is not a very large one. >
and france come we traveled there as the t-3, three permanent members of the security council who have worked together on many issues. but we did speak with the foreign minister, plus some of her colleagues. again, we raised the issue of the need to and outside support. as in previous discussions, the rwandan government strongly, vehemently denies that it is providing any assistance to the m23, and it has not taken the steps of publicly denouncing on a bilateral basis the m23. so we have raised this, and it's important that we continue to monitor this as others in the international community do on a very, very close basis. with respect to your second question about international support, or at least our bilateral support to the rwandan government, i start with what i said to congressman marino earlier, is that they utilize their international assistance, not only from us in particular, but others very, very effectively and to use it with great integrity. people get it. we are not providing any cash or check transfers. it all goes through international organization and donor groups that work w
24 in the united states senate. gratitude to my senate colleagues to micom tanakh as france and the tablet has been such an honor to serve. gratitude to other people without whose help, hard work and the port, i never would have made it to the senate or state here. the gifted and hard-working staff in connecticut and washington are supported, informed and enrichment service here in the volunteers in my campaign to give so much and asked for nothing in return except that i do what i believe is right. gratitude to all those who labor out of view in the corridors of this capitol building from the maintenance crews to the capitol police and everybody else anywhere in this building. thank you for keeping our capital running in keeping us safe. and gratitude, most of all to my family and they've given me every day of my life. my parents, grandparents and siblings, children and grandchildren and my wife of almost 30 years now, the love of my life who has been my constant companion supporter and partner through this amazing adventure. and so, i want to begin his farewell speech basi
in very significant fiscal problems. france has to be the poster child, although maybe greece, i guess, would take number wunsch. >> but we do know that the u.s. spends a larger percentage of its gdp on health care than any of the other developed nations by a fairly significant amount. so really tackling that underlying issue of what percent of our economy is going to health care in general is really the key issue. and we should be focused on that, i think, much more than the federal government's portion of it. and in this case where you have a proposal that would actually increase the share of gdp going to health care is taking us in the wrong direction. >> that is assuming that medicare spending equals medicare costs and, again, as somebody who actually ran the program, i'm not assuming that. >> you want to do that one? sure. >> dade, this one is definitely for you specifically and aarp. the question is this: what scoreable savings proposals does aarp support for medicare beyond just better care coordination? does aarp support means testing, combining parts a and b cost sharing or me

with britain and france. what are you talking about? and then he began to berate the defense ministry. he said he had been robbing our people, spending so much on defense, you're scaring everybody else. that is giving them an excuse for an arms race. and i'll tell you comrades, if we let them get by with forcing us into an arms race, we are going to lose. exactly what president reagan was trying to do, tactically. and i would say, you know, people at the time, i know some of martin's colleagues wouldn't say well, reagan but didn't pay that much attention to details. his eyes would glaze over. throwaway numbers of missiles of warheads, and true. he didn't look at those things. he concentrate on the basic things. how do i understand this as a fellow? how do i convince him to do something that is actually in his own interest? because his current policies are not. so we spent much more time, and i think, talking to reagan about where gorbachev is coming from, what his pressures were. and, of course, one of the things that we needed to do was, in this process, to convince him we are not out to do h
